Thread 14: How to Celebrate new born babies in Saudi Arabia👶
2. As soon as a Saudi woman conceive, she starts to prepare for the new coming member of the family. She will receive a lot of advice to take of herself, eat healthy and not carry heavy things and so on😅
3. The last 3 months, the mother stars to prepare baby clothes and room! Also, her clothes she will put on after giving birth! She must wear a little bit wide dress that she can feed her baby naturally through it easily!
4.When she give birth to the baby, father celebrate and family decorate the hospital room and bring chocolate and flowers! Also, their apartment's door😃
5. The Saudi woman who gave birth, stays 40 days at her parents home to indulge in her parents love! But some women stay at their homes and her mother either says with her or visits especially if she gave birth for the first time!
6. the new mother doesn't eat all food especially artificial and junk! She should eat healthy and whole grains! At the first week, she should drink soups and hot drinks such as fenugreek, anise, Fennel. These drinks clean the womb and reform the body! 2nd week, they give her milk
7. with some nuts and honey over some traditional food because they think this will give her strength and ability to take care of her self and baby! Of course, these traditions didn't change since ages!
8.The husband brings 2 his in laws' house meat, chicken, fruits, honey, ghee and visit every day!Although father of a girl who gave birth buy the same thing but it's a tradition!When family &friends visit,they bring gifts clothes,flowers, chocolates or money!Sm bring food& coffee
9. Guests receive souvenirs when they visit!
10. When the baby first born, his dad whispers at his right ear with calling for prayer and at the left with words that Muslims say to start the prayer! In Islam, father should slaughter a lamb at the seventh day for baby, or 14th, or 21st! It's called Aqiqa!he should invite ppl
11. Aqiqa kind of a party where family come and celebrate coming of the new baby! food, coffee, and incense are served! Some people add music and dancing!
12. When you name the baby on his grandpa or grandma's name, or some one else. This person gives the mother a huge gift such as golden set for the girl or money for the boy or girl!
13.When the girl finishes the 40 days stay or she wants to go her home before that, her family usually make good bye party to her!
